secretary. congratulations, harry reid, you built this. barack obama killed osama bin laden so republicans are killing the post office. thom hartmann joins us on that. republicans are still fighting each other. it is like a civil war with the south fighting the south. and eliot spitzer is with us tonight which is historic because you know conan's not going on jay. today is the birthday of carl bernstein, florence henderson is 79. also the birthday of keller and somewhere, somehow jimmy hoffa is celebrating his 100th birthday. we celebrate valentine's day to publicly demonstrate your affection with crap. this is "viewpoint." >> john: good evening, i'm john fuglesang. coming up, another state moves a big step closer to approving american equality and another conservative moves a big step closer to having a heart attack over it. bp pays billions in fines for the gulf oil spill then gets billions more in government contracts. lindsey graham announce he will continue to block lady gaga's tour until she provides more answers about benefit -- benghazi. >>> starting with the senate and majority le
't think you can trust -- >> senate majority leader harry reid says he hopes gun legislation will come out of the judiciary committee but he was noncommittal over whether he would sign an assault weapons ban. >> would you vote for it? >> frankly, she knows, i haven't read her amendment, i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> i will bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and senior staff writer for "the hill" alex bolton. good monday morning to both of you. ruth, this is the president's first big sell to the american people. what do you think he needs to say here? >> well, the president said he was going to give it everything he's got. i think what he needs to say is look, don't listen to the nra, listen to logic or listen to the nra from a number of years ago when it supported universal background checks. i think that there are three issues here in order of likelihood. one is background checks which has huge support and makes complete sense. one is limits on magazine sizes which i completely think the administra
they considered draconian cuts, harry reid and mitch mcconnell said there's a select committee that will spread the cuts all over, you know, over evenly, and that didn't happen, bottom line is, listen, this has been up for a year, and i, and others said, let's get to it, get to it, and they did everything but this. they are on vacation now. they should have come back last week if it's that important. it doesn't get down. i hope i'm wrong, but people are depending on a type of certainty and stability. lou: interesting difference of view in the republican party. speaker boehner in his op-ed this week acknowledges that there would be significant disruptions as a result of sequester going into effect, yet, most of the republican parties say this is what we need, see spending cuts, need to take if on even if it's across the board and arbitrary. there is a real division right now working the republican party apparently; is that right? >> i have not heard so much let's just make the cuts and about it. i'm in the pentagon. i'll serve next week again, and i'm working in the national guard bureau, and th
's in charge and harry reid in charge of the senate. you'd thought we're in charge of everything, apparently. we're not. the president needs to show adership. the house already sent forth proposals, sitting on harry reid's desk, he's done absolutely nothing to bring this to a head. he'll put a bill up with a great title, went be what we want and force you to do it, and, by the way, blame the republicans when it doesn't happen, and then they get to it after, obviously, the march 1 #st deadline. lou: military pay will not be affected by sequester. there's the prospect of possible rolling furloughs, one day a week, several effects that civilian employees, a great number of them in the rollg fiduciary row situation, if it does, in fact, occur. the idea of a sequester turns out to have been -- it seems to me, a monumental misjudgment on the part of both parties and the president, and i can't believe we are sitting here march 1st, and neither the republica or the leadership says this is a stupid idea, and the only people with the power to correct a massively ignorant device we created, and the rep
unprecedented before. ♪ world news tonight. ♪ >> can we talk about harry reid's gift? harry reid owns what happened with this fill buster. this is all him. he had the chance. not only did he promise he would do something about it, he had the chance to do something about it on the first day of the senate session. he could have done it with a 51% vote for filibuster reform and he didn't and we paid the price for it. stephanie: i couldn't believe he used the word shocking here. senator harry reid yesterday on the senate floor. >> shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense during all the things we have going on in the world, including a war. stephanie: also shocked to find out there's gambling going on in vegas. >> few leon panetta has to go to the nato summit in brussels. he's like george bailey. he's never getting out of bedford falls. i got big plans. i love her. she's a peach. >> because republicans have a punish a republican for the crime of being right about iraq. stephanie: exactly. this talking voice memo, filibuster wil
, a relatively new blogger on the basis of a 16-year-old. >> there's people who support him. listen to harry reid. >> i have the utmost confidence in him. as to the rest of the investigation, that will have to be handled the way they are, in-depth. the ethics committee are looking at it. >> there's relatively serious allegations. are you confident he did nothing wrong? >> i have confidence he did nothing wrong but that's what investigation are about. >> later on, if it turns out the investigation turns out to say the allegations are true, he can say i did have confidence and i had every reason to be and i'm so disappointed. >> even rolling footage of harry reid. he's the senate majority leader but he said i had on good information mitt romney did. >> are you rolling tape about prostitutes. >>> does harry reid understand what menendez is accused of? looks like the last dalliance might have been during the true man administration. >> he's also from nevada. >> what do you mean by that? >> did it bother you -- >> the question is, is it legal in the united states. >> thank you for that. >> life would
leader harry reid went to the senate floor this morning and blasted republicans for blocking a vote on chuck hagel, for the pentagon's top job. >> this isn't high school getting ready for a football game or some play that's being produced in high school. this is, we're trying to confirm somebody to run the defenses of our country. >> warner: democrats hold a 55 to 45 edge in the senate, but it takes 60 votes to break a filibuster so five republicans would have had to break ranks to make that happen. but partisan divisions were on display tuesday, as the armed services committee approved the hagel nomination on a straight party-line vote-- 14 to 11. that followed a contentious hearing in january, as hagel's former republican colleagues attacked him on several fronts, including his criticism of the u.s. troop surge in iraq. >> were you correct or incorrect when you said that the surge would be the most dangerous foreign policy blunder in this country since vietnam? were you correct or incorrect, yes or no? >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer on a lot >> warner: on s
started the fire instead of trying to put the fire out. >> we tried to get change cpi, and harry reid took it off the table. and the president claims he wants change cpi, but is harry reid more powerful than barack obama? >> that's a good question. >> no, it's not. no, harry reid is not a more powerful guy. but i do agree in the end, if the president will stop demagoguing, and if he'll stop running a presidential campaign, a permanent campaign that david brooks is talking about, al, i think you're right. i think the president, at the end, may actually make some decisions that will upset his own base, change cpi, on hopefully -- hopefully he won't take paul krugman's position and say we'll worry about medicare in 2025 when it starts to melt down. hopefully he'll be a little more responsible than that. i think he will. >> yes. >> but the problem, i think, goes back to mika's point. in all of the attacking the president, he has a plan on the table. you can say is demagoguing. the revenues that he's putting on the table from the taxes add up. the republicans have just come back saying, we're n
passed? >> well, first of all, he needs to call harry reid in to his office and say get with the program, pal. i mean, harry reid not to use a bad analogy but sort of shot it down. and harry reid comes from a gun state, comes from that background. he's been hit or miss on this in the past. if you don't have strong support from the leaders of the democrats in congress, how do you expect to get anything sweeping enacted? talking to people today, even the whole notion of expanding background checks and making them universal, the phrase universal background checks has now become a word of fear and a term of art among conservatives and the gun supporters who fear it's about registering, if you sell your something to the guy across the road that that's going to be require registry and you get the black helicopters flying within seconds there. i'm not even sure that in the end is going to get enacted. it is a sad, sad commentary on where this issue is. it's the ultimate conflict between targeted inside money power and the presumed views of all the american people. 90% of the american people in
a nationwide gun registry, but there are positive signs for majority leader in the senate harry reid and from judiciary chair pat leahy. when it comes to assault ban doing away with assault bans, that doesn't seem to be in very good shape. vice president biden who led the discussion says his major priority is clips and magazines limiting the amount of each. that, too is not very favorable. so when you talk about the whole gamut, it seems that background checks and especially that loophole in gun shows stands the best chance. >> is it lost on anyone in this debate that a background check wouldn't have stopped newtown? the kid got his guns from his mom. >> well, people feel that, of course, there will be exceptions, but as the president said and i think rightly so, that if they can cut in any way the chances of something happening, it's never going to be 100% foolproof. they're going to try to make an attempt. they want to produce some legislation, brian, that changes the dynamic. >> now is senate majority leader harry reid from a pro gun state going to be an effective leader on this? >> well,
with harry reid what they wi do to avert this from happening. instead he is pointing fingers at congressional republicans who twice voted for replacement plan to do something about these but, absent the president's leadership, absent harry reid doing anything we'll not sit here to debate against ourselves. it is time for real leadership out of washington and we're not seeing tha dennis: president obama has been warning us, women and poor children, will go without being able to eat if we have the sequester cuts. yet he hasn't scheduled an emergency meeting at white house until friday. the cutsave to go into place according to congress based sometime on friday. is he taking this seriously enough? >> i don't think so. i mean if you actually look, he is something like 5,000 miles on nrcc.org. you see the video. we talk about that he has flown 5,000 miles for campaign rallies seemingly for re-election he already won. i don't understand where his quote, unquote leadership is coming in this. we want to avert this with real cuts that make sense. the president hasn't been a partner. and this, look thi
could bring this -- harry reid could bring this up and could have been working on it from day one, they have done the dog and pony show, with political theater of joint chiefs coming and everyone saying oh, this is terrible, this is terrible, and then they go on vacion, bottom line, they have been elected to do a job, and solve the problems, what do they do? they go onacation. they should have immediately been brought back. with all of the stuff going on with north africa, and syria and afghanistan, and other hot areas, what are they focused on? who are they going do layoff? how are they going to be laid off? when about contractual obligations, and union obligations, is it payback after in terms of us paying fines. neil: who came up with it? you were there. the president said, it was really a republican creation, and republicans say it was the president's creation. i remember covering it at the time. i was not in the seams of it, as you were, but it was like for both sides a back up backbone. like if we can't agree, maybe these cuts held in reserve will be there to make us come up
aid to majority leader harry reid told the "wall street journal" that the bill will not include a ban on military style weapons. members continue to vilify efforts at increasing gun safety in a way that only they can. >> they demonize people who are legal gun owners and obama, oh, look at hem. he cares about the children. screw you. you think we don't care about the children? you're the one who won't do anything about the mentally ill. >> 99.99% of the gun owners of america are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today. would you leave us the hell alone? go after the nut jobs. go after the murderers because i don't know any. >> joy, let's talk about this. when you lead in with ted nugent and ann coulter -- >> doesn't get much better. >> always so much to talk about. insofar as we need to come together to get anything enacted. it does seem like the republican party or those in the conservative wing of the republican party have dug their heels in in a firm fashion. >> right. >> gin that, what did you make of the president's, we'll call it, push on the assault weapons
to establish safe environments for students. >> congress continues to avoid sequestration. harry reid is catching heat from democrats. he is sticking to his plan that calls for a 50/50 split between spending and cuts. many say the plan needs to cut more spending and end up along the lines of an 80/20 split. if no deal is reached by march 1, cuts will take place. >> warren buffett is getting into the food business. arch are half weigh is teaming up with three g capital to buy -- berkshire hathaway is teaming up with three g capital to buy heinz. the mu has to be approved. shareholders expect to close it and the third quarter -- shareholders expect to close it and the third quarter. coming up people and one group are turning their heart ache around and using it as fuel to help themselves. >> some happy couples are tying the knot today. >> a milestone for the redskins today. >> here is a live look outside this noon. >> you're watching abc 7 at noon with scott thuman and cynne simpson. this is abc 7 news at noon. on your side. >> metro is proposing a deal in hopes of bringing the fbi's ne
and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and work out a plan that they can pass. simple as that. >> using our troops as props? >> he went to newport news today and in a campaign style event using our men and women in the military as props. pure and simple. he traveled over 5,000 miles in the last two weeks doing campaign style events trying to drum up support for his actions on the sequester. all he would have to do is drive a mile and a half and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and get to work. remember, the house has done its job. it's time for the senate and the president to do theirs. >> chuck haguele is now the nation's defense secretary. the former republican senator was sworn in this morning, a deeply divided senate voted 58-41 in favor of president obama's pick to lead the pentagon. it comes days before billions of budget cuts are set to hit the military. he spent weeks battling members of his own party. in the end only four republicans ended up voting for hagel. >>> for the first time the obama administration is said to be providing
less agree with the democratic controlled senate in harry reid. politically, finding the consensus to do it, there is an acceptance around the capital that if an agreement is going to be reached, it will have to be like the fiscal cliff deal was, like the transportation bill was. speaker boehner has to pass it with a lot of democratic votes. that is a politically risky thing to do. in the crisis will lead him to do it. getting a majority of republicans to vote for a deal that can also be agreed to with 60 votes in the senate, there is no way to do it right now. host: todd zwillich is a reporter on capitol hill. lesley clark spends much of her time at the white house for mcclatchy newspapers. we will focus on sequestration and we will break it down topic by topic. later in the week, we will look housing and education issues. we hope you tune in all week as we provide more specific details on what will happen and how it could potentially impact you. let me go back to bob woodward. it is one of the opinion pages driving the day. he says the president and jack lew have this wrong. thes
a a president to lead. all they have to do is come up with and sit down with harry reid and senate democrats and work out a plan that they can pass. bill: what about that? democratic congressman adam schiff out of california is on the appropriations committee. welcome to "america's newsroom.". what do you think about the speaker? he is putting all this on the president and democrats in the senate. time for them to step up. >> well a couple things. this is the same speaker that said he got 98% of what he wanted in the whole deal that set up the sequester. but we're getting a very mixed message. we're getting a message, the problem we want the other house to go first. or the problem we want the president to propose something. the president has proposed something. i don't think the america people really care about who's idea this originally was or who got 98% of the what. they want the economy to --. bill: sequester in my own state. that will --. bill: let me get that in a a moment. i don't think anybody is arguing that. you call this a man-made crisis. why wait until friday to sit down and tal
you coming after the guns. >> that's a great segue of a problem potentially of harry reid to face in nevada. he took down the sportsman for harry reid website which you can still find, you know, screen grabs of online. it features very prominently an endorsement of wayne lapierre on the top and reads senator reid led efforts to create the world's finest shooting range right here in our state and staunchly opposed to the so-called assault weapons ban, played a critical role in passing a law to protect gun manufacturers from junk lawsuits, et cetera. where does he go in the national conversation? you mentioned some proposals flying around. what does he do about this? >> i think he's been pretty clear in trying to carefully stake out the position. the history here is he's definitely a pro-guns second amendment guy from a pro-gun state in nevada and the views didn't change. what's maybe changed is that his relationship with the national rifle association is a lot worse. he's found himself running against them and even though the votes are totally pro nra if you score him. the nra putt
-8. and both were eventually easily confirmed. today, senate majority leader harry reid knew he did not have the votes to clear the republican procedural hurdle, but scheduled a vote anyway to demonstrate this. >> republicans have made an unfortunate choice to ratchet up the level of destruction here in washington. there's nothing going to change in the next ten days about the qualifications of chuck hagel. i guess to be able to run for the senate as a republican in most places of the country you need to have a resume that says, i helped filibuster one of the president's nominees. believe that helps. believe that keeps a guy from a tea party guy from running against you. >> here's what president obama said just after today's vote. >> the notion that we would see an unprecedented filibuster just about unprecedented, we've never had a secretary of defense filibustered before, there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. there are only a handful of instances in which there's been any kind of filibuster of anybody for a cabinet position in our history. and wha
. >> on the other side of capitol hill, senate majority leader harry reid says it's the republicans' fault. no butts about it. >> i think he should understand who is sitting on their posterior. the speaker is doing nothing to try to pass anything over there. >> well, the president didn't engage in the posterior pow-wow but did play the blame game. >> there are too many republicans in congress right now who refuse to compromise even an inch when it comes to closing tax loopholes and special interest tax breaks. and that's what's holding things up right now. >> "outfront" tonight democratic congressman chris van holland. not every day we get to hear that word used on capitol hill. >> i will put aside the posterior politics right now. other than that, let's get at it. >> the president criticized republicans for their unwillingness to raise taxes in order to reduce the deficit but i wanted to ask you this, because you know the numbers. the tax policy center has said that nearly 80% of american households have gotten a higher federal tax bill because of the fiscal cliff deal you all did at the beginning
a great day. >> thank you. >>> just moments ago, senate majority leader harry reid announced the full senate will vote tomorrow on the nomination of chuck hagel as defense secretary. republicans have been threatening a filibuster. it would be the first ever filibuster against someone nominated for defense secretary. reid is urging republicans to stop playing politics. >> it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation without a fully empowered secretary of defense during all the things we have going on in the world, including a war. >> republicans say they want more information about the night of the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans. [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. we've got a lot of empty cans. all right that's a fifth-floor probleok.. not in my house! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! no no no! not today! ha ha ha! ha ha ha! jimmy how happy are folks who save hundreds of dollars switc
of trying to protect mr. menendez, a new jersey democrat, the senate majority leader harry reid needs to remove his gavel pending credible resolution by the senate ethics committee of the swirling accusations of misconduct. is senator menendez in -- in trouble or at least in danger of temporarily losing? he just became the chair of this committee? >> i had a chance to ask harry reid about this at a news conference a couple of weeks ago, and senator reid is giving no indication whatsoever that he is going to take the gavel away, and senator menendez is right about some of the allegations, some of the others that popped up in the conservative news side, the daily caller, no evidence to correspond roborate. the political -- >> almost two years late. >> and did not put them on his disclosure form is a problem for him. >> two weeks ago is one thing. now -- i mean "the new york times" calling for a democrat to remove a democrat from a committee is fairly noteworthy. >> let's say new jersey doesn't exactly have the best record when it comes to ethics in government. what "the new york times"
majority leader harry reid had to switch his vote to know to bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recess. you have a lot of republican senators who said as recently as last week that they did not want to see the choice filibuster. even if they wanted to vote no, he at least deserved an uptown vote to be approved. there was no precedent -- precedent to filibuster president's choice like this. the republicans decided they wanted to try to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on the issues like the terrorist attack on benghazi in september. they submitted to passing hagel when they come back. it way you're looking at, is delaying the inevitable. chuck hagel will be confirmed as defense secretary. he is just going to get to wait 11 days. to me, it seems like you should confirm him, because you're going to confirm him anyway. it is just another delay in what the senate is trying to do. harry reid set a new vote for tuesday, in 11 days. what do republicans want to see in the meantime? guest: they say they would like answers again from t

they want to examine information regarding the u.s. consulate attack in benghazi. majority leader harry reid plans to bring up the matter when congress returns from recess at the end of the month. >>> during a live streaming google hangout chat thursday president obama again defended his administration's use of drones on the war on terror insisting everything he's done is legal. but he admitted the public should know about how the program works. >> what i think is absolutely true is that it is not sufficient for citizens to just take my word for it that we're doing the right thing. >> a classified memo recently revealed u.s. citizens suspected of terrorism has been targeted drone strikes. when asked if the u.s. could target americans on american soil, the president said no. >>> today, a bail hearing for oscar pistorius, the olympic athlete and double amputee charged with murdering his girlfriend in his upscale south african home. the 26-year-old arrived just hours after his arrest. he fatally shot his model girlfriend reeva steenkamp who was struck four times. no word on bail but prosecutors
democrats on this issue, harry reid, senator lahey, talking pretty dismissively about the assault weapons ban. gwen: to weapon ban of any kind. >> right. although the magazine restrictions, they still appear to be on the table. the background check measure is astro nomically popular with the government, something like 90% of the people supported it including n.r.a. members. it seems to be a bit of a clever tactic to give some moderate politicians a way to try angulate on this issue so they can say i'm not for the assault weapons ban. that's extreme but i do support this lesser measure even though the irony that something like expanding background checks has the potential to affect a much broader potential policy impact in terms of the number of gun crimes. >> you said a number of n.r.a. members are in favor of the background checks. we haven't heard the n.r.a. say they're in favor of it. are they backing off on the background check issue? >> at least in public, they have not backed off at all. this is a bit of a flip flop for them. back in 1999 the last time this issue was debated, the n.
